TGIF ladies... and its once again reveal time at SOUS...
We are so happy to be posting the sketch challenges again.. The holidays were great but its a blessing to get back to normal...
Well... Here is my take on this weeks sketch challenge.. I don't have any big pictures, so I decided to add my twist to the layout and do the advent calendar instead..
My kids get an advent calendar every year.. Because they are all teenagers, they have asked for a scratch off calendar instead of the regular chocolate ones they used to get..
so, every morning they get to scratch off a part of the calendar and collect the little symbols and hope by the end of the 24 days they have collected enough of one symbol to win MONEY!!! 10,000 euros was this years jackpot.. My son Aaron won 5€ and I won a whopping 7€...LOL
but its not about the winnings, but the excitement of trying to win...
Here are some close ups and the details to the making of this layout..
